Israeli occupation forces injured at least six Palestinians, including a child, on Monday during a military raid into the Aqbat Jabr refugee camp south of the city of Jericho, the official WAFA news agency reported.

Local activist Ibrahim Abu Dahook told WAFA that Israeli occupation forces raided the camp, surrounded a house, and detained a Palestinian man, sparking clashes with residents. The man is the father of two sons who were recently killed by Israeli forces.

Israeli forces fired live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets, and tear gas canisters toward Palestinian residents and their homes, shooting and injuring four people, including a child, with live ammunition. Two others were shot and injured by rubber-coated steel bullets.

Most of the injuries were in the lower extremities, according to Jericho Government Hospital Director Nasser Al-Anani.
